Question about 1999 Toyota Camry

Gas station pump shuts off immediately

When trying to put gas in my 1999 camry, the pumps kicks off immediately. I have to hold it by hand at the slowest possible speed or it will kick back. I can hear the gas coming back up the neck. I tried blowing out the 2 small vent lines next to the neck, no help. Is there something at the bottom of the gas filling neck that could be blocking the gas from going in full speed.

    The filler nozzle "kicks off" from air pressure coming back up the filler neck. Make sure that the filler nozzle is all of the way in, and the rubber on the filler nozzle seals the fuel filler opening. Let me know if this helps.

Shut the explorer to put in gas tried to start it, it turns over but will not start


engine could have flooded could have leaking fuel injectors or clogged air filter.hold accelerator to floor to clear flood mode see if engine try to crank if not listen for fuel pump operation when you turn on ignition switch fuel pump should turn on for few seconds.if you dont hear fuel pump could have bad fuel pump fuse or relay.now if you ran out of fuel just getting to gas station could have damaged fuel pump.if getting fuel check for spark.could have faulty crankshaft position sensor or camshaft sensor.but have vechicle code scan first before buying new parts.

Cannot fill gas tank on 2002 Kia sedona. Even when you only pump 1 gallon, the pump clicks off like it is full. We have taken off the hoses but did not see any blockage.


I have a Kia Sedona 2005 and I can't fill it up with gas without the pump kicking off and I have tried several gas stations. Sometimes I can get a few gallons in with no problem but then it kicks off again and I have to spend twenty minutes dripping fuel into it until I loose patience. Help me!

99 gmc wont start


check electric fuel pump operation ( located in the fuel tank ). Occasionally a fuel pump will burn out when running out of fuel, due to the fact the pump runs DRY for about 30 seconds till the fuel stops flowing out of the injectors, the engine quits, simultainously losing oil pressure which FINALLY shuts off the fuel pump. Sometimes TOO LATE. Hope this helps

2004 chevy 2500 wont take gas into gas tank


I am having the same problem. When turning the pump on full speed it will pump for a few seconds before kicking the pump off like the tank is full even though there is no gas in the tank. I can pump gas if I barely start the pump and hold it by hand but very very slowly so it takes about 20 minutes to fill up. Its not the gas station or the way I am holding the nozzle as I have stopped 20 different places and tried every way imaginable to hold the nozzle. I have changed the filler neck, charcoal canister, and the sensor/filter that is on the side of it that I believe opens to allow fuel vapor to escape and let pressure off the tank when the truck is not running... still no luck. When I had the fuel next off there is a check valve that is made into the top next part of the tank that is spring loaded. I figured this was to keep gas from running back out in the event of a rollover and possibly keep someone from putting a hose down the next and stealing gas. At this point that is the only thing that could possibly be causing the pump to contiune to kick off every few seconds when filling up the tank. Next is to change the tank I suppose unless someone has already ran into this issue and can tell me what I need to do to fix the problem.
